Business Process Management (BPM) has evolved into a core competence of today´s enterprises business development. But the design and the execution of business processses are still crucial tasks. Business Rules provide a mean to overcome some of these difficulties. Therefore this paper presents two different types of business rules: management rules and functional rules. While management rules support the business process design, functional rules are annotated to design nodes of process models and can be easily transformed into executable expressions. Additionally, in order to show the usage of business rules the business process management framework ARIS House of Business Engineering (HoBE) is extended by a level that explains the role of business rules in business process design.
